    Only good for long-term stay

    Part Time Package Handler (Current Employee) Ontario, CA

    ProsYou cant really get fired that easily as any other job. Benefits. Can easily move up a supervisor in after six six months of working there.

    ConsWork is tough for little pay. Not a good job for short term workers. In the summer it gets really hot. Some position much harder than other, but everyone gets the same pay? It should be that the harder working position should be getting paid than the easily to work positions! In order to work full time, you have to be there for about 10 years.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It is a high energy demanding job that gets tiring.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsAs a part time employer you would get benefits. Always had hours. Could move around real easy. Good money if you stay long.

    ConsHot in trucks. And in warehouse. High demand. Management don't care if you hurt your self.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Nice Work If You Can Get It

    Seasonal Driver Helper (Current Employee) Springfield, VA

    ProsAssisted a driver at Christmas, was very fulfilling. Hard work is good when you accomplish something

    ConsManagement seemed oblivious. Was told about all the great opportunities at the beginning of the season, nothing was offered at the end of the season

    Advice to Senior Managementtalking about advancement opportunities is fine and nice but if you won't let employees take the first step how can they take the second, third and so on? Wanted to work, they even called me back to fill out paperwork yet was never put on the schedule. Don't alienate people who actually want to work.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Supervisers will constantly be yelling and you will constantly be sweating

    UPS Package Handler (Current Employee)

    ProsUPS will help pay for school. $1500 a semester for up to 5 years of school. You will get in good shape.

    ConsYou will constantly be sweating and supervisors will constantly be yelling.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Good company to work for but pay is that that well

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBig company and for the most part has a good reputation

    ConsPay for management is low

    Advice to Senior ManagementCan make more money elsewhere. Too much politics and then dealing with union employees is a pain in the butt

    Got me through school

    Part Time Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsYou get paid well and the benefits are great. I learned a lot about leadership- mostly what not to do and how to make the most of a poor situation

    ConsThe leadership in my experience is poor because no one trusts each other and the system doesn't give enough freedom to lead to supervisors. On the other hand, some supervisors are idiots who would screw up even more if they were given more freedom.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
